June in the garden
June is a busy month in the garden. You can start to plant out the plants you have raised from seeds indoors like courgettes and cucumbers. You can continue to sow direct carrots, beetroots and lettuce. You might even be able to start harvesting some crops by the end of the month. It’s not too late to start gardening with kids.
June is also a great time for spending more time outdoors with children. Playing in the garden, walking in the woods, visiting the beach or your favourite outdoor day out. You could even join in with 30 days wild.
June outdoor activities
I’ve written a post specifically for summer – summer outdoor activities for kids.

Many of my tips for camping with a toddler work for older children too and will work really well in your own backyard.
I’ve recently shared my favourite camping activities for kids of all ages here.
Our favourite thing to do right now is to get out early and start the day with a family walk. I know it’s not always easy to keep children happy on walks which is why I have put together this post packed full of things to do on a walk with kids.
Of course, there are so many fun things to do outside at home this month. We’ve been spending our afternoons in the garden playing, crafting and generally having lots of fun. Recently we have been trying lots of things to do with sticks.
If you have little ones you might enjoy Forest school activities for 2 year olds.
Don’t forget if you are going to the beach this month then you need my post – Beach activities for children. I bet you haven’t tried all of these! You could even take a free printable beach scavenger hunt.
